Malarkey Legacy Shingles with Transition to Low Slope EPDM Roofing – Edmonton, September 2015

This Edmonton client's roof bears both a low slope EPDM and a sloped shingle system. GRS went out to their residential building to replace both surfaces over the course of a few days.  Roof Report: September 24, 2015 The team got started for 7:00am and went on location to carry out a roofing hazard assessment and the day's paperwork preparation. They were on the roof shortly after, scraping and sweeping off the gravel from the roof. Once the gravel was removed, the team laid down fiber board and fastened it to the existing system. The EPDM was then put down in a 10' x 12' section, and adhered to the fiber board. After a break for lunch, the rest of the EPDM was affixed with the metal refastened by the early afternoon. Everything received a proper sealant, and by 2:30 they began to clean up the site in preparation to leave for the day. Materials Used:
  • 1 Can of glue
  • 1 Can of primer
  • 20' x 10' of EPDM
  • 1 Roll of EPDM tape
  • 1 Roll of form flash
  • 3 Tubes of lap caulking

Once it was torn off, they prepared the structure for new shingles. The client had selected Malarkey Legacy Shingles in Storm Grey colour. The crew got to roofing in the shingles on both the back and right sides of the house first, and, when completed, they began tearing the old shingles off of the left and front sides. These too were re-shingled by the time that 6:00pm rolled around. Between 6:00 and 7:00, the ridge cap was installed, the site cleaned up, and the crew departed; leaving the job site complete.
